Good news is, you have plenty of options to choose from. Today, we bring you a list of some of the best EVs on the market.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV has DC fast charging options, which makes it another option besides the Tesla 3.
The i3 is pretty comparable to the Tesla models. Its design suggests that it isn’t any standard EV. With a carbon-fiber body, the car’s weight is less than 3,000 pounds. Its range is 153 miles. Its quiet and smooth ride will keep you comfortable. If you want more range, go with the i3 Rex which has a two-cylinder gasoline engine, offering a range of 180 miles.
Tesla Model S
